    Did they switch from Upstart to systemd, too? Afaik Tizen 2.0 used Upstart as init daemon.

    Tizen 3.0 with Wayland sounds promising.

    Wayland display server
    • X server is replaced with Wayland at this version. Full specification of Wayland protocol is implemented based on Enlightenment 19 and other core platforms like AppFW, SystemFW and Web engine are totally aligned with those changes. This new display server reduces application launching time and computation resource consumption by about 30% compared to previous version.

        Is nice to see that wayland brings more performance, for me the issue is on the desktop, running Xwayland applications will have its rendering overhead, and there are going to be lots of applications running in Xwayland, at least on the desktop....

          I am a little curious to the change from Webkit2 to Blink

          Has Webkit slowed down that much?

            I think it's simply that Blink has Google behind it which means faster bug fixes and feature development?

              They had the SPDY protocols as default among other things as well.

                  They're putting development effort into Tizen.

                  But what's really the plan for Tizen?

                    IVI would be one example where Tizen is widely adopted
